On June 10, 2013 our lives were forever changed. Our youngest daughter Emerson was born that morning at 27 weeks, weighing just 2 lbs 5 ounces. We would spend the next 67 days in the NICU. The roller coaster ride that is NICU life would test us emotionally and physically unlike anything we had ever experienced before. Surviving this experience brought out something inside of us that made us want to give back, to try and give back all that was given and done for us. Since then we have become an Ambassador Family for The Ronald McDonald House Charities, The March of Dimes, and Graham’s Foundation. We sponsor the Ronald McDonald House Charities’ Family Rooms at both Dell Children’s Hospital and Seton Medical Center in Austin, TX.
